This qualification will help you acquire knowledge, understanding and technical skills through work-related contexts as part of your Key Stage 4 learning. The qualification is equivalent to and compliments GCSEs to help develop work-related skills in the Health and Social Care sector. It will help broaden your experience and understanding of where your studies can take you in the future.
The course is split into three components.
Component 1: Human Lifespan development (Internally assessed) Learners will investigate how, in real situations, human development is affected by different factors and that people deal differently with life events.
Component 2: Health and Social care services and values (Internally assessed) Learners study and explore practically, health and social care services and how they meet the needs of real service users. They also develop skills in applying care values.
Component 3: Health and Wellbeing (Externally assessed in February and May of Year 11) Learners will study the factors that affect health and wellbeing, learning about physiological and lifestyle indicators, and how to design a health and wellbeing improvement plan.
You will be assessed through tasks set by your teacher that could take the form of presentations, practical assessments and reflective journals, and one exam with a set-task.
After completing your BTEC Tech Award, you will be in a great position to continue study. You can go on to further academic study such as A-levels, or further Level 3 vocational subjects such as the BTEC Level 3 National in Health and Social Care.
